Join MGNE artist Carol MacDonald for a virtual tour of her critically acclaimed exhibition "Mending Fences: New Works by Carol MacDonald," on view at the Rokeby Museum through October 25, 2020.
Recently featured in an article in the NY Times, "Mending Fences" is a multifaceted exhibition of work in many mediums exploring the idea of mending and repair. The Rokeby Museum is a preserved historic site and exhibition center that encourages visitors to use the polarized past to hold up a mirror to the political discord of the present, with a focus on social justice.
“If ever the country needed mending — of its political rifts, racial divisions and coronavirus woes — now is the time. Carol MacDonald’s new work, on exhibit at the Rokeby Museum, plumbs that need with uncanny timing,” states art critic Amy Lilly for Vermont's "Seven Days."
For the exhibition, Carol MacDonald created a series of 17 monotypes from antique clothing and lace. For this virtual tour, Carol will show a video of her exhibition and discuss the process of making these prints.
